Vcore On Intel P4's

Recommended Posts

I have heard 1.7 with adequate cooling. Push it as far as you can on stock and then start playing with the voltage. I can get 235fsb on stock volts but after that its gotta go up. To get 255 i have to run 1.7v 250 1.675vand 1.625 to get 245.

wow man, you either have zero case ventilation, like it is sealed in saran wrap maybe? or your ambient room temp is way too hot for a pc!



My room aint that hot....


but I only hav ONE case Fan...thats at the top.


However, the PSU has a big 120mm fan drawing air away from the CPU, and I got an Aritic cooler on my X800XT PE, so that pushes air out....



Both CPU & GPU are at 43 Deg C atm... :(


Under load (playing HL2 for 2-3 hours) they go up to 54 CPU 60 GPU... :(


I ran Prime 95 for bout 3-4 hours, and my CPU got to 56 maX :)


Then I scaned for Artifacts on ATi Tool to put the Card under load...


it hit 70 maX :O


That was running for bout 20 mins. And after 10 mins, it hit 70 Deg, but didnt go any higher....



My Case is a Medion, as is the mobo... was a prebuilt system, but I hav almost eXchanged every part by now.


If I wanted more Fans I would hav to cut holes, and done that once for the top, but that was hell, so hard to cut, and I dont hav PRo Tools.


Only 1 Panel is removable aswell....side panel.


Bit of a classy lady. But its a nice small Case, with Kool front Panel.


And my System runs fine....never get artifacts or anything. I cant OVerclock my CPU, and no point OCing my Graphics card, as it already runs everything on MAX settings! ^_^




but I now see the MAJOR draw backs of Prebuilt computers.


and I shall NEVER EVER buy one again!
